Why is the Bottle Bill important?

The bottle bill has been around for 30 years, and it is - by far - the state’s most effective recycling and litter control program. It’s a great bill, BUT it doesn’t cover water, tea, or other non-carbonated beverages. That’s what we’re pushing for with an expanded Bottle Bill!

Quick Facts

•      It is endorsed by 208 cities and towns.

•      It is supported by 77% of voters.

•      It helps cities and towns with litter/disposal costs; The State estimates that cities and towns will save approximately $7 million total in these costs once the update passes.

•      It complements curbside recycling, reaching the on-the-go beverages that curbside cannot. For example, curbside recycling recycles only 22% of water bottles, but the bottle bill brings in 80% of deposit bottles like Coke and Pepsi.
